Marvel is bringing Blade again to the massive display screen within the subsequent section of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali taking on the position. THR stories in the present day that actor Delroy Lindo (Da 5 Bloods, “Anansi Boys”) is now in last talks to hitch the reboot.
Whereas it stays unclear what position Lindo will likely be taking part in, THR notes the actor would be the first to return onboard since Ali’s casting. Lindo can at the moment be seen in Netflix’s western The Tougher They Fall.
Stacy Osei-Kuffour (“Watchmen”) was just lately introduced on board to put in writing the script, and Bassam Tariq (Mogul Mowgli) will direct the character’s return to the massive display screen.
As for once we can count on to see Blade, in a graphic shared out by Marvel India, the movie was just lately listed as releasing on October 7, 2022. This has not but been confirmed.
The vampire-slaying character was created by author Marv Wolfman and artist Gene Colan, launched in July 1973’s The Tomb of Dracula #10. Snipes performed Blade throughout three movies from 1998 by 2004, and he was performed by Sticky Fingaz in a short-lived TV collection.
